     That would then be the first really negative functional impact of this 
warning that John planned.
     There are good reasons why the windows are raised as they are today.

Here's a solution which I think will satisfy everyone:

 1 Release 0.10.0 is imminent.  Let's release it asap.  As it will be an 
official release, it will not have any warning.

 2 Then, as a first post-release task, let's replace the existing splash screen 
with an startup window 
   which must be acknowledged.  Then we don't need to have any warning in the 
titlebar, or in the output window.
